Masao YOSHIDA

Masao Yoshida (吉田正夫) was born in Japan in 1934. He received the Nikakai Prize for New Talent and the Nika Prize in 1957 and 1960 from the Society of Progressive Japanese Artists. He moved to Europe and worked at Atelier 17, Stanley William Hayter's Parisian printmaking studio, from 1961 through 1963. There he learned intaglio printmaking and was introduced to the Atelier 17 surrealist abstraction. Yoshida quickly adopted this style and used rich colors to create compositions that seem to be built from psychedelic cellular forms. We have been unable to ascertain what became of the artist after this fertile creative period and we would welcome any further insight into his artistic journey beyond the Paris years.
